That Friday Feeling!
Dolphins Dancing in the Firth
Friday doesn’t always mean the same to us at Dolphin Spirit as it means for everyone else! Normally, Friday is the start of our busy weekend period, so no resting up here! That said, it was a very quiet day in the Moray Firth in pretty much every possible way; there was nothing really going on with the weather, not many boats around, and the wildlife wasn’t particularly active either. A late arrival from Kesslet changed that however, when she eventually rocked up to the party at 2pm this afternoon. The neap tides have been playing havoc with the fish, making it harder for the salmon to get through when there’s only about 2 hours of fast flow from the sea. It doesn’t help that the recent “good” sunny weather has made the already colossal journey even harder by lowering the water level in some of the rivers to mere trickles. For the salmon, all this hassle isn’t really worth their time! Kesslet certainly had food in mind when she came to visit however, charging her way upriver to see if there was anything worth having!
Kesslet Makes a Splash
Always at the very last second of our trips, Kesslet likes to pull a little trick or two as a goodbye to our passengers. After spending a good little while with her out in the channel earlier on, Kesslet felt the need to give us a great big send off as she disappeared back upriver. The surprise today was a huge surface-rushing dive, sending spray everywhere, and a fantastic, huge breach just out the rear of the boat! She’s been a little elusive at late, but this amazing display was enough to put a great big smile on everyone’s face (even on our skipper and guide!). It was lovely to see her so active, especially with the weather being so grim and grey besides.
Why not come aboard with us this weekend to see if you can catch up with a bouncy Kesslet? Will Charlie come and join his mum in the channel again? The only way to find out is to hop aboard and experience the Dolphin Spirit for yourself!
